LED state inverted?

by mrbubba on Mon Mar 07, 2022 7:32 pm

The state shown for LED components and what happens on the device appears to be inverted. "Feeds" page also shows LEDb with a value of 0 (and LED is 1). Is this intended?
Data in the packet when moving the switch to "On" is:
D [0x44], 2 [0x32], [0x12], [0x01], 1 [0x31]
which seems to confirm that a value of 1 is being received by the device, yet the LED goes out.
When moving to "Off" the packet as expected contains:
D [0x44], 2 [0x32], [0x12], [0x01], 0 [0x30]
but the LED turns on.

This functionality is expected and documented for the ESP8266. This inverted LED state is only for the ESP8266, it's because of how the Feather ESP8266's LED is wired internally. I noted this in the guide (https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-fea ... 3110605-26).

I've filed an issue directly on our issue tracker here, https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Wi ... issues/229
